Rssults of Autointoxication.
These are only a few of the condi
tions caused by the wrong selections
and combinations of food. The gener
al physical trouble Is described by the
word autointoxication, which means
that we have eaten more food than the
b<Hly could use. and nature has decom
posed or changed It Into alcohol and
carbon dioxide poisons.
Autointoxication causes innumerable
symptoms, such as anaemia, languor,
drowsiness, impure blood, indicated by

Interest in things. That is. where we

bright and quick to comprehend, our

There are a number of other condi
tions caused by the wrong selections
and combinations of food which, nam

are rheumatism. Bright's disease, gout,
lumbago, diabetes, hardening of the
arteries, enlargement of the liver, etc.

Is more merciful than the state. She

How to Make Your Camera Worth
If you have camera make it worth
while. Perhaps you cannot make it
worth while so far as actual money is
concerned. But you can at least learn
to take pictures that are worth taking.
More money is wasted each year on
films that never produce a picture,
probably, than each photographer in
the amateur class in the land speeds
for films that are productive of really
good pictures. For every amateur who

So, if you have a camera, determine
not to be a wasteful photographer.

make entries about all the films and
